  • Re: Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous

    Well as you know I am no big fan of BMW reliability history but I always thought their engines were pretty sweet regardless. I guess I'm just a sucker for the 'ol straight 6 of bygone years. It's my favorite config.
    Whaddaya mean, "bygone". Straight six in all three BMWs at my house. ;)

    Started in Georgia though. Been around in 14 months.
    Red leather and a stick! I'm okay not being the first guy to put my hands on it..

    Top 5?

    Mostly because they were different or interesting..

    In order of acquisition

    '76 Jeep CJ=5
    '67 BMW 2000CS
    '84 Porsche 911 Targa
    '88 Mazda 323 GTX
    '06 BMW 330Ci ZHP (daily driver for the last 5+ years)

    But, the best car was the '82 Accord hatch.

  • Re: Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous

    In 40 years, since I bought my first car, I have only had 12 cars that were my daily driver or extra car, just for me. Seems like it should be more than that.

    But, my 22 year old is on car #3 (I paid for all of those), and my wife is on car #10, just since we got married in 1993.

    So, that's 25 total in 40 years. I found it was a lot easier to justify a big payment to my wife, if the car was "hers".
